Good news for all you airship combat junkies in Guns of Icarus Online. Muse Games has successfully completed its Kickstarter campaign to add a new PvE co-op Adventure Mode to the game. The Kickstarter concluded yesterday with pledged funding of $198,741, nearly twice that of the original goal.
The raised funding hit two of the four funding goals for new content, so players can expect to see the new Adventure Mode and AI Director for co-op PvE added to Guns of Icarus in the future. Funding fell short for the final two goals that would have added a new Econo-Political System, which would allow players to help influence the world and fortunes of towns, and World Building tools, a set of development tools to help the team design content more efficiently and quickly for guns of Icarus. If it's possible to do so, Muse Games hopes to still deliver the Econo-Political system despite coming up just short of the pledging goal, however, the hopeful development of the new World Tools will likely have to be shelved for now.
If you’re looking to give Guns of Icarus Online a try you can catch it on sale for 50% off at Steam this week for $9.99.
Over $200,000 Raised!
May 21, 2013 –Muse Games' Guns of Icarus Online has completed its Kickstarter project to create Adventure Mode, which expands the original co-op airship combat game to include full co-op player vs. environment (PvE) settings. This monumental step will take Guns of Icarus Online to the next level, allowing for player progression, questing, and an immersive setting within the Guns of Icarus world. More information at www.GunsofIcarus.com.
CEO Howard Tsao had this to say about where the funds will go and what features to expect, "First I would like to thank all of our supporters, including those that purchased our current game as well as those that are helping fund the next phase. We're absolutely certain we can deliver a PvE experience that will live up to everyone's expectations and be a blast to play and explore. On top of that we're going to strive to deliver the Econo-Political structure discussed in the Kickstarter event, adding dynamic quest and political relations to the PvE framework. While we fell a little short of the funding goal for that addition, we believe it is still within our grasp.
Guns of Icarus Online is the premier airship combat game where up to 4 players man a single ship in their attempt to coordinate with their team to bring down the enemies in a variety of game modes. Adventure Mode expands on this format, creating a living online world with true player, town, and meta progression.
